YARMOUTH – On Monday March 12, 2018 a Knock and Announce search warrant was obtained from First District Court of Barnstable authorizing the search of 377 Sesuit Neck Road, East Dennis, Massachusetts.

The search warrant authorized officers to search for Cocaine, a Class B controlled substance and evidence related to the distribution of Cocaine.

The search warrant also authorized the search of George Smith and any persons present in the location to be searched.

The search warrant was obtained based on probable cause developed during the investigation into the distribution of Cocaine by George Smith.

On March 16, 2018, at approximately 1300hrs, Yarmouth Police Department lead investigator Detective Scott Lundegren, along with Detective Sergeant Kalil Boghdan, Detective Christopher VanNess, PAC Unit K9 Officer Nick Ambrosini and Detectives from the Dennis Police Department executed the search warrant at 377 Sesuit Neck Road, East Dennis, Massachusetts.

Upon arriving to the location, George Smith was encountered and he directed officers to the rear seat area of his Volvo automobile and stated he had a quantity of cocaine hidden in the bottom of an insulated water tumbler.

Officer Ambrosini and his narcotics K9 partner “Gauge” responded to the vehicle and located the container. From the tumbler, one large bag and two smaller bags of a white powder (cocaine) were recovered along with a small tinfoil packet containing a strip of perforated and colorfully decorated paper (later identified LSD by Smith).

The following items were seized during the search:

White powder (cocaine) in knotted baggies (approximate gross weight 6.1 grams)
Small strip of blotter paper w/design (LSD)

George Smith was placed under arrest and charged with Felony 94c s32 Possession of Class B with Intent To Distribute (Cocaine) and Felony 94c s32 Possession of Class B with Intent To Distribute (LSD)

All items located and seized pursuant to the search warrant and transported to the Yarmouth Police Department for processing as evidence. Using a TruNarc Ramen Spectrometer, a quantity of the white powder seized during the search warrant tested positive for cocaine.

Subsequent to the search warrant, George Smith was transported to the Yarmouth Police Department where he was booked and processed.
